Wonders of Alaska

According to the Jour. Roy. Met. So., 27-158, a “phantom city” appears in the sky over a glacier in Alaska between June 21 and July 10. Supposedly features in it have been recognized as buildings in Bristol, England. These mirages were seen by the Alaskan Indians. A scientific expedition from San Francisco was going to investigate in May 1901. The scene is the same from year to year.
